Comments about RESIST 10% Niacinamide Booster - 0.67 oz:
I have been a devout PC user for the past 10 years with almost everything in my medicine cabinet being PC. With that said, I wanted to love this product because of all the great reviews, but sadly, it just didn't work for me. I used it religiously for 2.5 months, 2x a day with no visible improvement. I have genetically large pores and oily skin, and while this did help with the overall appearance of my skin, it did absolutely nothing for the actual size of my pores. Needless to say, I will not be ordering this again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Anti-Aaging Super Star,
from Toronto, Canada
I started using this product about three months ago, mixing it with my PC serum and applying it morning and evening before my sunscreen (a.m.) and retina-a (p.m.). I am a PC fanatic, having used Paula's skin care line for about eight years and preaching Paula to anyone who will stand still long enough to listen. PC skin care has done marvelous things for my combo/acne prone/sensitive/aging skin. At first, I was discouraged. I didn't think the Niacinamide Booster was really doing anything but, ever a believer, I kept on using it. And then a funny thing happened to me, a woman who had worn a full face of makeup for over fifty years, suddenly started asking herself why? Why did I need all this stuff on my face? I didn't need to hide anything! My skin was great! In fact, it was better than great, it was clear, it was even, it was glowing!!! Finally, at over 65 I had incredibly good skin, no wrinkles, nothing to cover up!!! What was going on here? Apart from a little redness around my nose (with me since my teens from over-zealous attacks on long gone blackheads), a few tiny spider veins, and my periodic dark circles, my skin hadn't looked this good since I was twelve. I immediately ditched the foundation and concealer and dug out my lightweight mineral powder. A little powder concealer around my nose, a quick swish of mineral powder over my T-zone, a dab of blush, sweep of mascara, lipstick and I'am good to go. I save twenty minutes in the morning ;-) I've had tons of compliments on my "glowing" skin. The most spontaneous came from a young boy, a special needs child of about fourteen, as I exited a treatment room at my chiropractor's. The boy looked at me and said in a very loud voice, "Wow, you look like you're about fourteen." The whole room laughed while his dad smiled cautiously. I thanked the lad with a big smile, thinking, "out of the mouths of babes..." He knew I wasn't young but that I didn't look my age, either.Paula, you are a goddess. The 10% Niacinamide Booster is my new anti-aging HG. Thanks to you and your team for continuing to figure out what our skin needs to look its absolute best. I will continue to rave about Paula and her line of skin care until I can no longer find the keys on a keyboard or I lose my voice from overuse.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Minimalist
I am 43 and have watched my pores get increasingly larger and more clogged/congested in my T zone as the years go by. I was hesitant to try this product due to the mixed reviews and the price but I sure am glad I did! About a week into using it I looked closely at my skin and was surprised to see that my pores were dramatically smaller, like reduced by half! They are also less congested/clogged. I have had no irritation and I use it 2x a day. This one is an absolute winner for me! With Paula's great 60 day money back guarantee it's definitely worth trying.

Not For Me
About Me Beauty Conscious
I practically never breakout but since I started using this niacinamide on my chin and around my nose for enlarged pores my chin is all broken out and looks terrible.
Not for me
I found it too strong for my skin it irritated it, I do not like this product and found it did nothing for my skin. Not worth the money.
Wanted to Love, But Couldn't
from Santa Clarita, CA
I love Paula's Choice and really wanted to extend my love to this product. Unfortunately, I couldn't. I used it for a few days and noticed I got like "chicken skin" on my chin and in the light creases between my brows and around my mouth. I stopped using the product and it went away. I then tried to use it again, but it returned. I stopped again, then tried every other day or every few days, it still breaks me out. I wish it worked for me, but it didn't.

I have been acne free for the past year until a few days after I tried this product. This is the first PC product that causes breakouts on my skin. I stopped using the product for a while to allow the breakouts to go away. I was not sure entirely sure still, so I decided to give it a second go. Then only a day later, the pimples came back. I would like to caution people especially those who are acne prone to be extra careful before using this product.

About Me Skin Care Professional
I'm a long time fan of Paula; I've used a majority of her AHAs exfoliants, antioxidant serums, and additional supplements for almost ten years. I am amazed at the results of my own skin with just adding the Niacinamine booster to my AM routine!!! My skin is smoother, tone is almost even enough that I can skip foundation, and my acupuncturist/TCM doctor just told me (after not seeing me for two months) that I looked so much younger and I had just rolled out of bed for my appointment! I'm hooked! (BTW/FYI: my AM routine consists of just splashing my face with water, then C-15 booster mixed with Niacinamide all over my face, then when dry/absorbed, antioxidant serum, then my make up. My PM routine is always an oil cleanser to remove all of my make up and then a cleanser. Sunday and Wednesday nights, I use Paula's 1% Retinol treatment. On Saturday night's I use a 14% AHA serum.) Please, Paula's Choice, consider larger sizes for the Niacinamide and the C-15 booster!!! Maybe 1.7oz??
Works! Really really works!
from Tallahassee, Florida
I used to think that nothing could be done about the pores on my nose! After about 2-3 weeks I couldn't believe the difference. I combine this with the 15% Vitamin C serum, and the results are amazing.

Works well for me
This product is working excellently for me. I am 25 and over the past two years my skin has become larger pored on my cheeks by my nose and on my forehead. I have always been complimented on my skin and how young I look so the change in my skins texture has been disconcerting, especially considering my age. I have read niacinamide can be helpful for enlarged pores so I ordered a sample of this. I've only been using it for 4 days but it's made a major change in the appearance of my skin. My pores have shrunken noticeably and my skin tone appears brighter and tighter. I started by using it once in the evening the first two days and now add 2 drops to my AM moisturizer. Now I have to suck it up and order the full size bottle. hah! Thank you for the excellent product.
